I am so pleased to present my newest pattern, Giselle, which will be available exclusively through Stitch Diva Studios.

The pattern is currently in the tech editing stage, in Donna Druchunas' capable hands. After that, it goes to layout and then the pattern will be available for order.

Jennifer asked me to model the garment so I met with her, near her home and we shot over two days. I have the first day's shoot up at my Flickr account. I'll have the second day's shoot, shortly in the same location. Check out a couple of the outtakes at the end of the set.

The garment is modeled in three variations; an all knit version (orange), a knit and crochet version (red and silver-mo betta pictures to come) and a cropped version in knit and crochet (to come, in brown and teal.) However, the knitter can work any of the styles in a single color or in two colors and may work knit or crochet trim in any combination.

This design is based on a piece I've called, The Wedding Cardi, which I knit for myself back in 2005, for a friend's wedding.


It was knit in a discontinued yarn, and well before I had a firm grasp of pattern writing. I had it as set dressing for one of my episodes of Knitty Gritty and have continued to receive requests for a pattern, since. I hope that this ends up being a popular pattern. I'll let you know when it's available for purchase.


Gorgeous! Both you AND the pattern!

I really love this pattern. It's gorgeous and romantic without being frilly (I think it might be the rich, strong colors). Shaped perfectly. And very wearable -- we'll all look forward to its release!

The sweater is classic and feminine and flirty and I'm completely crazy about it, and the photos are absolutely beautiful!

Positively gorgeous. Congratulations!!

You look like a Rennaisance goddess in that new sweater!


Sexy! I hope it's a big seller!

You make me wish that I had a waist... LOL.

Oh lovely lovely! I can't wait!

you could not be more beautiful - love the red and silver -

wolf whistle.


What a gorgeous design! The sleeves...that neckline...the beautiful model...Words can't do this one justice! I cannot wait until this pattern comes out.

Beautiful - knit, model & setting! You must be a dancer of classical ballet, yes?

Perfectly lovely. I remember you mentioned your mom hasn't been happy with pictures of you; these ought to thrill her.

Congrats, Marnie! The pattern is beautiful in all three versions. Now I just need to learn to crochet!

That's funny, I was just admiring your wedding cardi on Ravelry and wishing you had a pattern for it when I saw this. :) Gorgeous!

Very Lady of the Castle. It looks really good on you. :)

Oh. My. Gosh. It's gorgeous and amazing and I love it! I am going to have to push everything back for this one. I'm going to be daydreaming about yarns already, although I have no idea of the yarn weight needed. :-)

Now that's hot! I'm just trying to see what the green thingy is on the front.

Frit Froo! You and the sweater are so beautiful!


i will say no more.


well done! I look forward to seeing the other versions too -- congratulations!

I love it! Man, I can't wait to be able to knit for myself again, instead of for pattern samples..THIS is on the list :)
